Denim Dress, Black Boots: Thrifted.
It's been quite the exhausting/stressful week and it unfortunately had nothing to do with school work.
On Wednesday evening campus was on lock down because shots were fired by an on campus building and they couldn't find the shooter. Although I was in my dorm at the time, the incident happened at the building where NAVS is held; the place I was going to go to in just a half hour. Crazy to think about that I could have been there. We couldn't leave our dorms for three hours and they had all the police force here and in surrounding towns trying to find him. My roommate was out and at the building next to the place where it happened so I was really worried about her. Thankfully, they did find the man and what happened was he got in an argument with two girls and pulled out a gun and accidentally shot himself in the hand. I'm thankful no one was hurt and nothing worse happened. It was just a scary, somewhat surreal situation since the famous Kent State Massacre happened here in 1970, forty some years later, I felt what those students also felt.
Then last night a blogging friend alerted me to the fact that someone had set up a fake lookbook.nu account of me and had been using my photos which just baffles me. I don't even understand why anyone would want to do that? For one, I'm not this huge, important person-- just a regular girl, so I don't understand why someone would steal my photos. Secondly, just....like, why? I'm more sad than anything because it's just terrible that you can no longer freely express yourself creatively without someone trying to steal who you are. I'll never get what goes through a person's mind when they take another's work. It makes me feel down and hopeless that everything I put on here will just be taken and used without my knowing, so why post anything anyways? It's also frustrating because the profile had just been set up that day and thankfully someone caught it...but it makes me think about, how many more things like this are going on without me knowing? I don't know, just leaves a bad taste in my mouth and a sad feeling in my heart.
Thankfully I got enough people to flag the user and the profile was taken down today. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all those who helped me out in doing so!
I'm ready for a relaxing day today...hopefully some tea in my new mug that says 'relax' on it will do the trick. Love you all ♥
With much love, Lauren.
